2:00 am
s.f. p.u.c., and we have been involved with the community benefits program since 2016. over the past three years, the community benefits team and our team has established contacts with the local leaders in the out country region of the hatchachi water system. when we first started, we decided to focus our program on the out-country region because we felt our work would have the most positive impacts on the community. and since we are engineers, we we we're focused on education and workforce. and we have donated over $100,000 in volunteer hours and in kind gifts. our biggest contribution has been with the local school district and the community college district. we provided scholarships, grants, fundings for
2:01 am
laboratories, science projects, and 4-h clubs. and one oand it has been truly rewarding for me to talk about my work and how stem concepts allow me to do my design work for the community. i grew up in a community very similar the out-country communities, and i know how these kind of programs can change people's lives. my parents immigrated to this company with no money, but they came with hope. and in communities like this county, hope can take a lot of different places. i remember when engineers and scientists came to visit my classroom, and they talked about the problems that they solved, and it provided me hope, and because of that hope and hard work and guidance from my mentors, i'm a successful engineer living here in the bay area.
2:02 am
so i can personally testify that the community benefits program is changing lives, and the stuff we're doing as mic mic milan jacobs is changing lives. >> chairman: thank you you and your company for your participation. the next speaker. >> my name is alyssa gomez, and i'm currently an intern at the almeda county. in my internship, i am tasked with various projects to support the work being done by multiple agencies to improve and maintain the health and resilience of the alameda watershed. some of my tasks include monitoring the eco-system health, supporting native species, and educating
2:03 am
youth in the bay area. in performing these tasks, i have learned a great deal about the environmental challenges facing the alameda creek watershed, and of the watershed's resources. additionally, and working with partners, i have gained provincial skills and mentorship that will be invaluable to me moving forward. being a first generation college student, navigating my si time at u.c. davis, was slightly more challenging for me. they have be extremely supportive of my internship and eager to provide me with opportunities. i feel empowered, involved, and recognized. this is a dynamic internship opportunity that i'm grateful to have. thanks to his internship, i have a broad idea of the different career paths i can take, and new skills and knowledge. i would like to end by extending my gratitude to the s.f. p.u.c. and the
2:04 am
conservation district for this experience. thank you. >> chairman: thank you for your kind words. next speaker. ms. bello. >> good afternoon, honorable commissioners, and excuse me as i look down at my phone. i'm the executive director of u.c. united for community action. out of east palo alto. a little context on east palo, we're predominantly latino, black, with a significant polynesian community as well. some time back we identified a need for more research, education, and transformative change around the topic generally of water. we came up here today to share some testimony
2:05 am
regarding our partnership with brown and caldwell, which was facilitated and made possible by the s.f. p.u.c. i'll share my time with my colleague, kenia, who can speak a little more about what the work has looked like at the problematic level. >> i'm one of the program directors at uca. and what they have given to us. this partnership with them has been very essential for our community in east palo alto. some of the great things that they have done for uca is conducting workshops, which coiforts consis of education, where our water comes from, and what kind of jobs people can look into if they're interested in pursuing a career around water or water infrastructure. brown and caldwell also
2:06 am
assisted us with technical support, and wonderful prizes that we were able to give away to people during community booths. we put these booths together to educate the community on how our water has worked historically, and our current water system, and how it works in san mateo county. but especially how it works in east palo alto. ani have this here today, and we were able to distribute this to create community awareness, and this was done by our young people. finally, brown and caldwell has also been very instrumental in facilitating a five-minute video that we are creating with another organization bacan, and it will be finalized around may. we know that usually videos are much more -- like easier to watch and easy to distribute, so that is wonderful. we're very thankful for all of the amazing help that brown and caldwell
2:07 am
has given to us. >> thank you, kenya, with that, i'm wrap up and say one of the amazing things that has happened in our community is with all of the research, education, and advocacy that has come out, east palo alto has been successful at increasing our water. and that means there is an important development that will come for us in the near future. i would like to end with a sincere thank you, and ask that you keep this social impact program strong, as a city, east palo alto and a larger community have benefited greatly, and would love to see this opportunity made available to other similar communities. so thank you. >> chairwoman: thank you so much. i would like to call the next three speakers. lets see. prad haka -- i'm probably mispronouncing that.
2:08 am
marches, and brockter. >> hello, commissioners. itei'm a project manager at carrel engineers. we've been involved in the social impact partner program since 2012, and over that time, we've donated $600,000 in private funds and volunteerism. and in such ranging projects such as workforce development, working with young community developers in the city works program, and environmental organizations like "friends of the urban forest." the organization i'd like to tell you about is the mason scholarship program that we've been very proud to be involved in. in partnership, they have -- every year they have a afforded scholarships
2:09 am
to public school students, graduating from s.f. public schools. each of the students not only get a scholarship, but they get the mentorship and the support they need in order to help them metri met matriculate throh college. and now they given 77, and tacolicious gives more. so we give two scholarships a year to stem students from the bay view. one, we are so happy to name after dr. espanola jackson, so it is in honor of her. [applause] >> yeah. that's one of the ones i'm most proud of. but what has been so great for our company, we review scholarship applications and review some of the applicants. and i've been able to get 30 engineers from six different offices throughout the country
2:10 am
getting involved in this program, which is great. i know that my background is not much different from these students, from where they start, so with a little bit of encouragement, it is amazing what can happen in a career. the work that i have done leading s.f. programs has actually afforded my company to put me in charge of all corporate responsibility programs throughout our 32 offices in the country, and other cities are trying to mirror what you guys are doing, but definitely s.f. p.u.c. is. first. so, thank you for this. [please stand by] p.
2:11 am
2:12 am
2:13 am
2:14 am
2:15 am
>> it clearly shows that one firms have an understanding of the corporate social responsibility to communities they are working in, it behooves them to work with local community-based organizations like young community for developers. in order to do so without any resources or guidance coming from the s.f. p.u.c. we have worked closely with many over the past eight summers, i look forward to continue working with them, but you all don't want to hear from you, you want to hear from some of these young adults that i have behind me who
2:16 am
have all gone through city works , all have graduated from four your institutions at our back working in the city. that is the goal of the program, and they are living proof it is working and we will continue to work. our future is bright. without further at do i will present to you mr. phillips who graduated from morehouse university, which is a historically black college in atlanta, georgia. [applause] >> thank you. good afternoon, commissioners. i am a san francisco native and a recent college graduate. i have had the privilege on the opportunity to work and learn about government relations policy, water, power, sumer, i had an amazing experience and i once had the chance to take multiple trips, once as a intern
2:17 am
and once as a program assistant and so for me, i was able to rotate this was extremely beneficial i'm interested in the public policy and i plan on transitioning to the public sector soon. without this program, i don't believe much of my ask success would be with -- i would be the person i am today. i appreciate this program. thank you so much. >> good afternoon, commissioners i'm also a native in the bayview i'm here to attest to the brilliance of the city works. it has completely enriched. it maybe competitive -- it made me very competitive.
2:18 am
i was able to intern at facebook for my professional experience working at the s.f. p.u.c. and community benefits and so i just wanted to say, i recently graduated, i studied business management in french and now i am working -- [applause]. >> thank you, thank you. thank you city works. [applause] >> hello, commissioners. my name is elijah and i'm a graduate of the university of hawaii. i am pursuing a master his degree at the university of san francisco. one of the things i wanted to mention is a gave us a very good opportunity to develop a network and i'm not speaking unjust behalf of myself, but my peers who have joined the program as well. not only have we developed in
2:19 am
that work, but we have also been forced to ask ourselves a question of, you know, what are we going to do after this program? in doing so, you develop skills that you want to have for the working world and you start to think about pinpointing what you want to do with your career, and i think that is one of the most valuable things and it even bleeds over to issues of displacement and post- college opportunities in the employment field. i want to say thank you for the opportunity and we appreciate it , and even past that, we have been able to take part in the fellowship program which allows us to get our foot in the door for that specific focus, and for that we are truly grateful. thank you. [applause] >> i want to make one comment before a commissioner walks through the door, i had the opportunity to walk through it commissioner proctor at why c.d. a couple of weeks ago, i think i
2:20 am
love most about this partnership between the two you pee -- p.u.c. and all the big corporations is that you guys have a solution, they provide the support, i look at how your team is empowered and you are bringing stars back to san francisco, and if the city won't take you, the california academy of sciences will take you. i just want to log your work. you give them an open solution. and congratulations to each of you on graduating. a great job and keep it up, this is fantastic. lastly, if i made, i want to make sure i echo the sentiments to the general manager and his entire team without g.m. kelly coming out during the kickoff and allowing these people to see him in the position he is in, just gives them another ounce and another motivation that's not seen before, and when we are
2:21 am
working with a.g.m. ellis and she and i are sitting on panels, and we are having conversations locally and nationwide about the work we are doing, it speaks to the innovation and the progressiveness of us here in san francisco and we continue to hope to do more work through c.b.d. with the firms and the s.f. p.u.c. >> thank you for your leadership >> d.j., congratulations on your new appointment. [laughter] >> wonderful stories. okay, for the next three speakers, davis, franklin and phillips. >> good afternoon. here's a bit of a handout if you don't mind. a copy of our corporate social responsibility report and i have flagged our partnership with the p.u.c.
2:22 am
thank you, commissioners, general manager kelly, thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak today. my name is robert davis nine the northern california regional director for parsons corporation , we are an engineering firm that have been doing work in the bay area for over 60 years. i'm here and i feel fortunate enough that we were one of the first to be able to contribute to this community benefits program. since 2012, as the program management advisor for the sewer system improvement program, the joint venture has contributed and invested over $650,000 into the community. these funds supported various partners, including, but not limited to the labor community, the community training foundation, the house, and city works. city works alone has been appointed more than 150 internship opportunities in district ten, additionally
2:23 am
additionally, as the recently selected as a construction manager at southeast plant, parsons has a significant commitment to community and i serve as executive in charge responsible for distributing that commitments. i do want to close on a personal note, keep it brief. it was a time back when i had hair that i was in a very similar to city works, and they gave me a tremendous opportunity to really have exposure to professional engineering world, and put me on the path i am on today. programs like this really aligned with the values of parsons corporate social responsibility, and i'm fortunate to be part of it. thinking c thank you, and parsons, of course,. >> good afternoon.
2:24 am
my name is dr. franklin. this is dr. rogers, and we are the principal and assistant principal at dr. charles drew elementary school located in bayview. dr. rogers and i took over leading the school this year and being that we are both born and raised and educated in san francisco, and particularly in the bayview district, receptacle for our students when we came in we wanted every child to be a reader, and in education, everything is assessed and measured, so we set a target to have 40% of our students reading at grade level by the end of the year. we began the year at 10%, i'm so
2:25 am
having a 30% jump was a lofty goal, but it is something that we were committed to you in terms of serving our students. our partnership with mw h. and web coric, they were able to provide us with 20 laptops, and 20 ipad tablets that allowed students to practice the skills they learned in class, so we were able to utilize a program, which is a phonics program, if you allow me, i will start talking like an educator. [laughter]. >> it is a phonics program and students, not often times they get to practice the lessons that teachers teach, so teacher spent about 20 minutes conducting a lesson and then it is over. so we wanted to give students the opportunity to practice, and
2:26 am
with the help of this partnership, we were able to do that. with the utilization of the eye read program, and also using what's called rev kids, which provides books for students to read, because our classroom libraries are pretty limited, it just opened up doors. we were able to better engage students with text and as a result, we not only achieved that goal, but we surpass that goal by 5%. 45% of our students are reading at grade level that is just one example of what can happen when corporations invest in our children, and it is wonderful to hear college students from the bayview graduating from college, and it also starts at pre-k. it actually starts in the home,
2:27 am
but it starts at pre-k. what does that sound mean? >> i'm sorry. it starts at pre-k and elementary, and we are so grateful to have had this opportunity to benefit from that resource, and most importantly, our students are grateful. >> just a quick note from me, i am dr. espinoza jackson's granddaughter. my grandmother is living in the bayview, although she has passed away, we are going to continue to build relationships. so thank you. [applause] >> wonderful story. the laptops were put into the first grade? >> first grade students. we want to start a really solid foundation, so that is when we teach students how to read, and then in the later grades, they
2:28 am
read to learn, so those foundational grades are super important. >> it's very exciting. >> thank you. >> thank you so much. [laughter] >> the next three speakers i have, phillips, or have we heard from phillips? >> i believe he already spoke. >> and teresa gaines. and daniel romilly. >> good afternoon, commissioners , good to be with you all. my name is therese and i'm the founder and c.e.o. of old-school
2:29 am
café, which if you haven't been, i brought some brochures because i hopefully will make you hungry , so you will come join us we are the first ever youth run jazz a restaurant supper club, and it started here in the bayview's hunter's point. think of a 1920s speakeasy, but all run by young people ages 16 to 22 coming out of jail, foster care, and other traumatic life circumstances. my background is a corrections officer working with young men who are incarcerated due to gun violence, and being on the other side, you see quickly this is not the solution, so really i am honored to get a chance to share of the difference when we put money into the other side of the solution of actually investing in our young people and their healing, in hope and opportunities, job training and employment, as well as wraparound supports. that is what we do. the youth actually run the entire jazz restaurant, they are the host, the servers, the chefs
2:30 am
, and the entertainment. we teach the management, we tried to get that entrepreneurial spirit and the desire to be leaders, and so one example, we had money that was given to us through a con parsons investing in our program , and one young man who is a perfect example, jonathan, came to us, he got out of jail, came straight to us. we have a lot of referrals from probation officers. he was ready to turn his life around. a lot of our youth to go into the restaurant service industry, that is not the only place. we really try to get them to dream and expose them to all different kinds of careers. he was very entrepreneurial, and went to talk -- talk delicious, i think they were mentioned earlier and he ended up working for them is it a great job, i really wanted to start his own barber shop, he is now an entrepreneur, has a barbershop called to the barber head, you can go get your hair done they
2:31 am
are, please to support our alumni, and so that is really the difference of breaking that immediately, that cycle of incarceration of poverty and violence, but not only giving job training, but the support that is needed. we have had over 600 youth you have come to the program and they are everything from a master his in screenwriting, to becoming an entrepreneur. we are grateful for the community benefits and we hope you will continue. thank you. >> wonderful story. remarkable. >> good afternoon, my name is daniel. i'm the deputy director of urban at academy, real quick, you have heard a ton of people so i will try to keep it brief. parsons, the joint venture and brown and caldwell allowed us to
2:32 am
jump into our newest program which is a culturally reflective and retort retort it -- restorative staffing model where we are migrating 100 black men to be teachers in elementary schools in the bayview hunters point community. we are extremely happy, because at the baseline level, a partnership from those partners that i just mentioned allows us to get this thing off the ground at this time last year, right now, you can see two in particular instances of success, metrics that we would call success, one being with a young child, i won't mention his name, and the way that he sets the pace for the energy in the entire building, and helping him -- putting people of influence and of direction in front of him that look exactly like him has allowed him to see him in a different light. she wants to help kids younger than him stay online what they
2:33 am
want to get out of line. the second point, there has been a steady bleed in the school that we have been anchored act, and part of our saturday school program that has been affected by the presence and the influx of black men at the campus, no less than 12 families have expressed the fact that they are enrolling their students in that school because of an increased presence, and the malcolm x will start off with a more dollars than they had in over a decade due to that increased enrolment. that's really some of the nuggets that we are able -- that were able to be created by virtue of help from partners like brown and caldwell and parsons. i just wanted to say thank you, especially to commissioners as well for having this program on. >> thank you so much. are there any other speakers on this item?
2:34 am
all i can say is i'm rather speechless, actually. i say this, i feel like i am smiling from the inside out when i hear about what the social partnership program has done, it really is very exciting, and again, misses ellis, very good. any other comments? >> i have a question. when we are hearing about the origins of the program and how it is structured, and how various companies have taken that on, there was an emphasis on outcomes that were part of their proposals and program designs, and obviously what we have been hearing about today, is there a way, is there a scorecard that helps us and
2:35 am
others keep track of what is going on? i recognize it is a little bit unusual and that this is not a program that we run, exactly, nonetheless, we have a stake in it and i'm curious about what we can do in that regard. >> yolanda. >> i'm happy to answer that question. let's start with the basics. the firms are required to report twice a year on their activities , and let me take one step back, they submit a work plan when the contract is awarded, and that is what they report twice a year on, his on the community benefits team, our staff is involved to the extent that you would be on any other deliverable on a contract to make sure the work gets done, so we take the reporting at this point, it really takes the form of a template that we give them that is uploaded into an online database where we track and manage all of the commitments and whether or not they are done , and then we ask for verifications such as copies of
2:36 am
the checks, for example, paid internships, if it is volunteer hours with the staff, we want to see the hours of the stuff that participated, so we have not only the firm charge of reporting on what they've done twice a year, checked and manages -- managed in salesforce online, but we take that extra step to verify from official sources like those copies of the checks or payroll to make sure that those commitments were fulfilled the way they said they were. >> in terms of outcomes like the number of people who are graduating from college and getting college degrees, or i think francesca suggested, how many career jobs have been created, so that's not so much the process where you're hitting all the benchmarks, but what is coming out the other end.
2:37 am
one of the challenges we have is you have a lot of truth coming through the program, but you want to see what happens further down the line, and so i think you have these internships going into college. how many have gone to college, how many have graduated, how many are in the stem, to be have any examples of that. >> we do track -- where we track , on the community benefits program side, which is p.u.c. dollars and p.u.c. staff-a lead, we track and monitor. we are tracking how many kids participate to the college hill learning garden, or how many kids through the school district to get exposed to curriculum that we have developed working with the enterprise staff on what are the literacy outcomes based on water.
2:38 am
do they have more knowledge coming out of the end of the school year? his on the community benefits program, we do a lot of tracking and monitoring on the outcomes and are we achieving the outcomes that we have set forwards. on the community -- on the social impact partnership, which is the corporate social responsibility peace, there's really less longitudinal monitoring and oversight in the sense of are the long-term -- what is happening long-term really, in many ways, because it is being driven by the firms on the outside, so where we are holding folks accountable is what did they say they are going to do, and did they do that without prescribing who, what, how with them, and making sure if they say they have interest in education and literacy, we just really want to make sure
2:39 am
that they're doing what they're doing. i don't know if you want to add to that. >> i mean unless there are follow-up questions. >> i do understand the difference in the two problem -- programs and how that would complicate the information that you get. it is tremendously valuable, though. if we could figure out a way of doing that, i mean, the most impressive thing about this is seeing the individual lives that have been changed in a very significant ways, and that doesn't just get reflected in the numbers, but numbers help. if there is a way that we could keep track of that, and graduating from college is just one. career in jobs is another. there are many others. if we can work with a part -- with private partners to figure out how we could do that, i think that would be great. >> definitely.
2:40 am
we have been approached by a couple of foundations on the philanthropic side that have been interested in this model, so i think even if we think about the studying and oversight and monitoring over the long term, we're thinking through how we can do that. there definitely definitely has been a lot of interest on the philanthropic side. they see this as philanthropy, and a really flexible way where it is just in time, and very similar to what they're doing on that side. so that might also be an option as we think about taking a step back. >> i know some of the challenges , even if you -- alumni for schools, trying to get caught up and figure out what the alumni his are doing, it has always been a challenge, and i know dana project pool, they are doing facebook alumni so that you can reconnect and see what folks are doing because , you know, once they're lost, it is hard to track folks down and see what they're doing.
2:41 am
if you guys can figure out a way that we can, you know, be more proactive on our side, but maybe , you know, work with our social partners and see how they can try to track how successful the efforts they put in individuals and how that helped them over time.
2:42 am
>> i think it is important to keep a broad view on who we partner with and how we sponsor thing because getting people workforce ready in general is important to the utility and to the city. it is not specific for an engineer. there are many other important priorities you have kept in the front of your mind, so i really applaud that. >> chairwoman:
2:43 am
wonderful. any other comments. let's move on to the next item. >> item nine. >> a quick update on clean power s.f. >> barbara hail, assistant general manager for power. today i'm going to go over our enrollment and service status update, and i'll talk a little about some of the questions we got at our last session about the clean power s.f f. rates, and how it compares to pg&es. so we're moving along successfully. april has been a big month for us as clean power s.f. has been transferring costumers into the program on their regular meter-read dates. customer cutovers will continue through the month of april. by the end of april, clean
2:44 am
power s. f. will have enrolled more than 4,000 customer accounts, including our april enrollment, the program opt-out percentage is 2.7%, and that's accumulative, since the program launch in may of 2016. we continue to have 97% retention rates. so that's great. just last month, i reported that the program had achieved a super green upgrade rate of 3.8%, with more than 4,000 accounts electing to receive 100% renewable energy. so that was a rate of 3.8%. today we have more than 5 5,300 customer accounts, and that is 1.4% of our now 350,000 active accounts we're serving. the super green participation rate has dropped, simply due to the
2:45 am
very large number of additional costumers we've been enrolling. so it is still all good news. while we'll be working really hard to bring that rate up over time, what really counts is from a climate perspective, is the amount of sales, the volume of clean kilowatt hours we're selling that comes from these super green costumers. when we look at our super green customer participation from that volume perspective, it is about 3.5% of the projected annual clean power electricity sales. so that's a good metric for you, 3.5% of our sales are 100% renewable. so on the rate changes, you know, we did get quite a few questions about the it pact of pg&e's march 1 rate change on super green costumers and whether it was costing mor.
2:46 am
more.i have some figures for you today that help explain what costumers who sign up for the super green service would may relative to pg&e's default service. before i get into that, i want to emphasize our clean power s.f. green service costumers currently pay less than pg&e's default service for all customer accounts. so if you're enrolled in clean power s.f., in our regular program, our green program, you're paying less than if you stayed with pg&e, and it's greener. our product is 48% renewable as compared to pg&e's at 39% renewable content. so cheaper and greener for everyone. let's talk about super green, and those are the costumers who opt up to receive 100% renewable product. if you're a residential customer, the typical residential customer pays an average of $771 a month
2:47 am
for electricity charges. and if you enroll in clean power s.f. super green service, it costs about $2.70 more, 3.7% more per month to receive 100% renewable electricity at your home than if you stayed with pg&e and received just their default electricity service. if you're a small commercial customer, like a corner store, the typical small commercial customer pays an average of about $450 a month for pg&e's default service. if they take that corner store and enroll in clean power s.f. super green, the cost to that customer is about $5 per month, 1.1% increase over what they would have paid if they stayed a typical pg&e small commercial customer. and then i have medium and large commercial customer data for you as well, if there is interest in
2:48 am
hearing that. yes? for medium, a medium comer pays an average of about $400,000 a month$4,000 a month. if they enroll in s.f. green power, it's about $4 more. than their typical pg&e electricity service. for a large commercial customer, they pay an average of $67,927, and this would be like a large office building or hotel, and that's each month. today clean power s.f. super green participation costs these costumers $720 more than their typical pg&e electric bill -- i'm
2:49 am
sorry, i said more and it is actual less. $720 less per month than if they were a pg&e customer. >> chairwoman: for super green? >> yes. >> chairwoman: how does that work out? >> it is partly because pg&e is going to change their rates again. so we're in a window here where our rates for some of our customer classes, even when you consider the p.c.i. aa. costs, and it is for the super green product, i it costs less than a pg&e default product. i'm going to report again when i know more about the pg&e changes, and those changes are expected in july. >> chairwoman: >> chairwoman: commissioner? >> those comparisons of super green compared to
2:50 am
the default regular service? >> yes. >> and do they also offer their version of green? >> yes, pg&e does, yes. >> how do we compare them? >> we're cheaper than theirs for those costumers classes today. >> okay. >> chairman: when you refer to "default," i just want to clarify something. >> yes. >> chairman: is that any renewables in there? >> yes. so under state law, pg&e is required to have some renewable content. and today their default is 39% renewable. and that compares to our basic product, our green product at 48% renewable. so we continue to anticipate increases for commercial costumers in the p.c.i.a. rate, but lower increases than we began projecting back in december. if clean power s.f. can
2:51 am
absorb the full exit fees for commercial costumers, as we expect we will, the rate relationships that i just reported will continue to be attractive. we're also anticipating that the p.c.i.a., the exit fee, will go down for residential costumers, which will increase the savings these costumers realize from the clean power s.f. program over all. we ants anticipat anticipate wee more information on the rate change, and we'll come back to you. meanwhile, the green power s.f. costumers are saving across the board. >> chairman: any public comments? >> i want to add a couple of things. one, i just wanted to make sure that the mayor has directed us to give a
2:52 am
report on the viability of three options with pg&e's status quo, built out gradually or require their distribution. and so once we formulate a report, we want to make sure we provide that report to you, the commission, as well. and as you mentioned, we'll make sure we schedule that next meeting to talk about. so i just want to make sure we're very clear on that one. also, we've been having power outages at treasure island, and i know that we've been working with the mayor's office of emergency management, but we really want to make sure that we step it up and let folks know, and so i know we've been working on that. but we definitely want to
